To the Valley of the Sun

In Ecuador, there are churches all over. These colonial churches of the Spanish were built on top of pre-existing Incan temples for the sun gods. The temples of the sun gods were all along the equator, making a line through Quito. The Incans were the first invaders of Ecuador and were later defeated by the Spanish and natives.
